Tiger of Sweden Fall/Winter 2015 collection
In the old factory building Old Sorting Office in the industrial area of New Oxford street – the Tiger models marched along a rough catwalk to the strains of futuristic synth music. For Tiger of Sweden’s Autumn Winter 2015 collection, the understated post punk look from the German synth band Kraftwerk has served as a great inspiration.
As ever, the suit is at the centre of the Tiger of Sweden collection. Mirroring the sharp, tautly tailored aesthetic of Kraftwerk et al, the silhouette has been elongated. The models of the show wore high wasted trousers complete with tapered legs cut in muted shades of military green, beige and midnight blue.
The artificial nature of synth music has also played a part in the development of the outerwear pieces that was shown in London. Oversized overcoats in bright sporty shades of neon blue and jersey knits, ties, socks, bags and belts in neon lime and fuchsia brightened up the crowd in the old sorting office.
Tiger’s trademark brand philosophy, ‘A Different Cut’ also permeated the new and exclusive collaboration with Derry-based brand Smyth & Gibson; two shirts - one with a cutaway and the other with a tie bar collar was shown on the catwalk.
